North Carolina Department of
The first goal was to undertake an analysis of recycling activities throughout the department.
Anecdotal information indicated that regular recycling activities varied throughout the agency.
Barriers to this activity included disparate public recycling programs in the communities throughout
the state where departmental programs and offices are located. Even in the offices near the
state government complex, there are currently varying recycling activities in place.
One of the long-term goals of the DCR Environmental Sustainability Team was to initiate
the Task Force for Recycling within the 1999-2000 fiscal year. It was established in June
1999. Currently Wanda Pierce serves as the chair.
